      Harrisonburg is the epicenter of the Shenandoah Valley bike community. Often referred to as "Rocktown" and "the Friendly City" and "the Bike Capital of Virginia" this small metro city is home to several great full-service bike shops, a vibrant downtown and a true college town feel. Harrisonburg is recognized as a Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists and is a Bronze Level IMBA Ride Center. Members of the Shenandoah Valley Bicycle Coalition are responsible for transforming this town into a bike destination through decades of trail projects, advocacy and strong relationships with land managers. Mountain biking in and around Harrisonburg can be separated into four categories: Massanutten Resort, GWNF West of Town, GWNF North of Town and trails in Town.

      The Rocktown Trails at Hillandale Park are the only trails within the confines of city limits. Its a great stacked loop trail system with a jump/flow trail, a pump track and a ton of technical limestone. This trail network is easy to ride to from most parts of town and there is plenty of parking if you wish to drive there. Be advised that limestone gets very slick when wet.

      Massanutten Resort is the closest riding area outside the city limits. The Western Slope trails are the go-to quick ride spot for most riders in Harrisonburg. Additionally, Massanutten Resort operates lift serviced a bike park April-October. For more information about riding at Massanutten Resort, visit https://www.trailforks.com/region/massanutten-resort-19642/

      To the west of Harrisonburg, trails in the North River Ranger District of the George Washington National Forest are renowned for big views, long descents, long climbs and glorious places to camp. Stokesville is the gateway to great riding west of town. Stokesville Campground is a private campground with a growing bike specific trail system full of berms, jumps and tons of flow.

      To the north of Harrisonburg, trails in the Lee District Ranger District of the George Washington National Forest are known for their difficult, technical rocky style of trail. Many of these trails follow serrated ridge-lines with boulder paved paths, overlooking the forks of the Shenandoah. To further break this sub-region down into riding areas, riders explore to North Mountain near Bryce Resort and Wolf Gap, and to the east Massanutten Ridge spanning just north of Massanutten Resort all the way to Front Royal Virginia.
